Inaction by Arab leaders against the ongoing Israeli campaign of death and destruction in Gaza has left the Palestinians aggravated leading them to look for support from international authorities, said an editorial published by IRNA on Monday.
"The deathly silence of the Arab League toward the Zionist war crimes signals a green light from corrupt Arab states to the occupying regime, allowing it to use extreme violence against Palestinians with impunity, without worrying about the consequences," the article said.
"The fact that Palestinians have appealed to international authorities instead of reactionary Arab [leaders] and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, clearly shows their total disappointment with the Arabs."
At least 30 Palestinians have been shot dead by Israeli security forces since the start of the new protests on March 30, when tens of thousands converged on the joint border with Israel, demanding the right of return for Palestinian refugees.
Live ammunition, rubber-coated steel bullet and tear gas fired at the rallies by Israeli soldiers wounding over 1,400 protestors.
